Notes

This was the first of the C&C-designed Viking series built by Ontario Yachts.
The VIKING 28 was also built by Anesty Yachts in England and renamed the TRAPPER 28/400. 70 were built along with a number of other C&C designs including the C&C 27, called the TRAPPER 27, and the C&C 35.
Although initially offered in kit form, many subsequent Vikings were professionally finished. A number of modifications to the design were made in 1974, and included the addition wider companionway with a pop-top hatch. The mast step area and vee-berth were altered to strengthen the hull. The VIKING 28 was available with either an outboard well, or a 7 hp Vire two-cycle gasoline inboard.
